A virtual assistant is a remote professional that provides administrative support to small business owners, executives, and entrepreneurs. Responsibilities may vary, but most focus on email and calendar management, phone communications, travel arrangements, and social media management. They may also coordinate personal assistant tasks such as dry cleaning pick up. Virtual assistants work remotely from their home office location, and work part-time, full-time, or hourly by contract, depending on the client’s needs.
